E-BOOK EXCERPT

Mathematics for Elementary School Teachers is designed to give you a profound understanding of the mathematical content that you are expected to know and be able to teach. The chapters integrate the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Standards and Expectations and the new Common Core State Standards, as well as research literature. The five NCTM Process Standards of problem solving, reasoning and proof, communication, connections, and representation highlight ways that teachers present content, the ways that students learn content, and various ways that students can demonstrate procedural and conceptual understanding. The worked examples and homework questions provide prospective elementary school teachers with opportunities to develop mathematical knowledge, understanding, and skills that they can apply in their own classrooms effectively. The learning path begins with the Where Are We Going? Chapter Openers, worked Examples with Yellow Markers that indicate the Process Standards throughout the text, to the Concept Maps, to the Section Question Sets with their refreshers of Process Standards, to the Chapter Organizers with Learning Outcomes and a list of the corresponding Review Questions, and finally, conclude at the Chapter Tests with their overarching Learning Outcomes.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

Intended for the one- or two-semester course required of Education majors, MATHEMATICS FOR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TEACHERS, 5E, offers future teachers a comprehensive mathematics course designed to foster concept development through examples, investigations, and explorations. Visual icons throughout the main text allow instructors to easily connect content to the hands-on activities in the corresponding Explorations Manual. Bassarear presents real-world problems, problems that require active learning in a method similar to how archaeologists explore an archaeological find: they carefully uncover the site, slowly revealing more and more of the structure. The author demonstrates that there are many paths to solving a problem, and that sometimes, problems have more than one solution. With this exposure, future teachers will be better able to assess student needs using diverse approaches.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

Freitag’s MATHEMATICS FOR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TEACHERS: A PROCESS APPROACH was developed using the five Content Standards from the NCTM Principles and Standards for School Mathematics, and the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics. Traditionally, books for pre-service elementary teachers have focused on problem solving. However, problem solving is not the only process through which mathematics is learned. It is also learned through mathematical reasoning, communication, representation, and connections. Recent trends in mathematics education now advocate implementing all five processes as a vital part of learning and doing mathematics. Consequently, you need to have concrete experiences with these processes that you will be required to teach. The goal of this book is to treat each of the processes equitably by using an approach in which the five processes serve as the central pedagogical theme. Most of the examples, exercises, and activities are designed to either model the processes or to directly engage you in working with them. As a result, you will not only come to understand the different processes, but also appreciate them as an integral to learning and doing mathematics. If this broader view can be instilled, you are more likely to give your students a more well-rounded and holistic view of mathematics once you enter the classroom. The content of the book is directly related to the mathematics that is taught in grades K - 8. The purpose is not to reteach elementary mathematics. Rather, the intent is to look at the content from a theoretical or generalized point of view, so that you can better understand the concepts and processes behind the mathematics you will teach. In short, the book focuses on the why behind the mathematics in addition to the how. Available with InfoTrac Student Collections http://gocengage.com/infotrac.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

Mathematics for Elementary School Teachers, 2/e, provides a unique opportunity for students to develop a clear understanding of mathematical concepts, procedures, and processes, to communicate these ideas to others, and to apply them to the real world.The goal is to achieve the optimum balance between presenting a thorough development of mathematical content and presenting it in a way that is understandable by students. The material has been revised so that it powerfully embodies the new Principles and Standards for School Mathematics of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

The goal of this text is to provide prospective elementary teachers with a deep understanding of the mathematics they will be called on to teach. Through a careful, mathematically precise development of concepts, this text asks that students go beyond simply knowing how to carry out mathematical procedures. Students must also be able to explain why mathematics works the way it does. Being able to explain why is a vital skill for teachers. Through activities, examples and applications, the author expects students to write and solve problems, make sense of the mathematics, and write clear, logical explanations of the mathematical concepts. The accompanying Activities Manual promotes engagement, exploration, and discussion of the material, rather than passive absorption. Both students and instructors should find this material fun, interesting, and rewarding.
